Huerco S. sticks his landing, launches new label and new moniker with new double album Make Me Know You Sweet
Brian Leeds prepares for his role as The Smoking Man in a possibly forthcoming X-Files Broadway musical

As the old fable goes: if you give an electronic musician a hugely successful album, they might just launch their own record label. If they do, they’ll probably start making music under a new moniker. When they start doing that, they’re going to need to create albums that just won’t fit on a single LP.

Following his immaculately acclaimed 2016 LP, For Those Of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have), Brian Leeds (a.k.a. Huerco S.) is inaugurating a brand new record label with a double-album of his own brand new music, under the BRAND NEW name “Pendant.”

West Mineral takes its first steps (or maybe gymnastic leaps) THIS VERY FRIDAY, January 19, with Make Me Know You Sweet: a double LP that sticks a perfect cherry on top of Leeds’s current applaudable career arc. The new album and new name will be ushering in a new sound for Leeds, who turns to immersive shoegaze influence to carry through his inspirations: JMW turner, Robert Ashley, and indigenous North American philosophy.

According to the press release, the new double record will find Leeds leaning towards “a more expressive, oneiric sound that subconsciously avoids the trapfalls of ‘chillout’ ambient cliché.” (Thank God.)

Making his mark as a serious auteur, Leeds and his new label aim to perfect the art of professional electronic music curation. Make Me Know You Sweet will be available via Bookmat this Friday, but you can get pumped in the mean time by revisiting that aforementioned, soon-to-be “classic Huerco S.” album down below, as well as the new album’s artwork and its incredibly Richard D. James-esque tracklist. That’s a perfect 10 from every judge for our main man Huerco! Oh sorry, I mean Pendant!
